30. Democrats always "cut and run", it's their MO
Edited on Tue Jun-07-11 07:14 PM by Raine
whether they should or shouldn't in this case I don't know but it's what they do. Democrats claim they want to "live to fight another day" but that day never seems to come. What is the point of "living" to fight when you never do. :shrug:
